   The revised OED has only 1893 for "maror" or "bitter herbs," a part of the Passover table.

   16 April 1889, BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE, pg. 2:

  THE JEWS IN NEW YORK.; Richard Wheatley.; pg. 323, 20 pgs
Pg. 340?: The "matzoth," or unleavened cakes, keep alive the memory of deliverance from Egypt, as the "maror," or bitter herbs, do of the precedent bondage.


   OED has 1885 for "charoseth," another part of the Passover table.

   27 January 1878, NEW YORK TIMES, pg. 8:
   The horseradish, or bitter herb, and the mixture called _choroses_, typify the bondage of the Israelites and the cruelty of the Egyptians in embittering their lives by the degrading servitude to which they compelled them.  The _choroses_, being prepared in the form of a paste or preserve, is symbolical of the mortar which was used by the Israelites in building the treasure cities for Pharaoh...

   18 April 1878, BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE, pg. 2:
   Near this dish is placed a saucer of vinegar or some salt and water, and there is also another dish containing a mixture of almonds, apples, nuts, figs and spices, formed into the consistency of a paste or preserve and known by the name of "choroses."


   OED still doesn't have this?  The NEW YORK TIMES isn't great.
